Sorry for missing it the first time, Joe.

Yah, I think the documentation should be changed. Changing the
behavior would be a lot of effort for only a minor gain.

I've changed it, hopefully this will be clearer:

  $ svn help revert
  revert: Restore pristine working copy file (undo most local edits).
  usage: revert PATH...
  
    Note: this subcommand does not require network access, and resolves
    any conflicted states. However, it does not restore removed directories.
  
  Valid options:
    --targets arg : pass contents of file ARG as additional args
    -R [--recursive] : descend recursively
    -q [--quiet] : print as little as possible
    --config-dir arg : read user configuration files from directory ARG
